Why You Should Always Schedule Blog Posts

Because Sometimes Life Gets In The Way

So for the past week I’ve been in bed ill and haven’t been able to blog at all. Stupidly I had no blog material in my drafts to be able to schedule. I was getting even more stressed out that I didn’t have anything scheduled and that wasn’t exactly helping me get better. I do NOT want to be in that situation again.

Unfortunately Life throws some curve balls that we don’t expect and the best way to avoid your blog suffering is to be prepared. Having a little back log of posts that have no specific time that they must be published by and keeping them on standby isn’t a bad idea. Something I now in hindsight wish I had done.

I was doing really well with my blog writing and had managed to schedule a fortnight ahead. But then I thought ‘Oh no worries, I’ve got a fortnights worth of content. I can just chill for a bit now’ Wrong. Now I’m behind on things I should have done and have lots to try and get written over the weekend now that I’m feeling better.

So this post is kind of a sorry for not posting for practically a week and a reminder to myself never to let that happen again. So Neesha this is your friendly reminder.. Don’t rest on your laurels, get scheduled, get up to date and keep it consistent.

Anyone else fallen ill and had their Blog fall behind? How did you get back in the game?

    I'm glad you're feeling better now. You shouldn't have stressed really as this happens to all of us. I've started a new job last week and suddenly faced a 12h day and felt too tired to write a post in the evening. Luckily I had a 'spare' one in my draft section (a post I was about to delete nearly as I thought it wouldn't fit anymore) but I'm so glad I didn't. It saved me to the weekend and I managed to write up some post. I think when you get ill though you shouldn't stress about it. Health first and stress will only hinder you in getting better. xxx

    I love to have a range of posts in my drafts ready to click publish for those days I don't have time to sit down and write a full blown post. Hope your feeling better now! (:
